Chapter 142: Dark Bluesilver Grass

    Volume 16, Chapter 142.1: Dark Bluesilver Grass

    Tie Li and the two elders tried to deflect Tang Ya's Saros Pythonweb, but the web proved resistant to their attempts. Any soul power they blasted towards it just seeped through the gaps in the web, all as it barreled towards them.

    Because of the sharp spikes on the web, they were unable to physically deter the web, leaving them to retreat. Likewise, dodging to the sides was proving difficult with how fast the web was coming at them.

    But when they finally managed to avoid the web and arrive on the scene, they witnessed Tie Tang, being engulfed by Bluesilver Grass.

    "You-you killed my son!" Tie Li roared furiously, his eyes almost entirely red. He was indeed a six-ringed Soul Emperor, and his body began expanding alarmingly fast. His body became over 2.5 meters in size, and greatly increased in physical attributes-all from unleashing his martial soul.

    Though still a Soul Emperor, he wasn't nearly up to scratch when compared to Ma Xiaotao or Dai Yueheng. This was easily seen in the colors of his soul rings; one white, two yellow, and three purple. Zero black soul rings, this meant that Tie Li's was to forever remain a Soul Emperor-he'd reached his limit and had no hope to become a seven-ringed Soul Sage.

    The other two elders were also shocked. They also knew who Tang Ya was. They unleashed their own martial souls when they saw Tang Ya's four soul rings and the Bluesilver Grass.

    "Sect master, please be cautious. Her martial soul doesn't seem to be ordinary. She seems to be sucking young master's strength away. Don't tell me, don't tell me she's an evil soul master?" The elder to the left of Tie Li exclaimed. His face turned pale-white when he said the words 'evil soul master'.

    What did an evil soul master mean to an ordinary soul master? Death. All evil soul masters had a special ability to increase their speed of cultivation beyond that of an ordinary soul master. But their mental states would degrade along with the evilness. It was very difficult for them to improve any further after they obtained seven rings.

    Was Tang Ya really an evil soul master? The answer was yes.

    When Tang Ya was first conceived, her parents already knew of a hidden gift in her body-the gift of devouring life.

    This gift contained an immense evil aura. However, it was concealed, and wouldn't appear unless it was initiated actively.

    Tang Ya felt that she was lagging further and further behind Bei Bei when she was at Shrek Academy, and restoring the Tang Sect was even more hopeless for her. Eventually, she chose to initiate this gift of hers when Bei Bei went to compete in the Continental Advanced Soul Master Academy Soul Dueling Tournament.

    She left the academy secretly after classes were over and found a dense forest. She then unleashed her Bluesilver Grass and devoured the plants in the forest, absorbing their life power for her own cultivation. Her gift of devouring life was extremely strong, and her cultivation improved leaps and bounds with the help of this gift. However, her martial soul also underwent transformations because of this, and turned into the current Dark Bluesilver .

    Tang Ya had a strong will. She knew that her own cultivation would increase even faster if the Bluesilver Grass devoured a soul master's life and soul power. But she never did so. How could she kill innocent people just to restore the Tang Sect? It was only today that she could no longer suppress her will to kill when she saw her enemies upon returning to the Tang Sect. The evil aura controlled her mind, and she began killing senselessly within the Ironblood Sect. After she used the Dark Bluesilver Grass to kill and devour the life of the first Ironblood Sect disciple, she had turned irrevocably into an evil soul master.

    Tie Li was also fearful at the prospect of facing an evil soul master. An evil soul master's cultivation couldn't be measured in the ordinary sense. Although Tang Ya only had four rings, it was clear that her true abilities had surpassed those of a soul ancestor from how easily she killed Tie Tang.

    However, Tie Li couldn't be bothered about his fear after witnessing his son's tragic death. He didn't even get to see his son's corpse.

    He dashed towards Tang Ya and roared furiously.

    Tang Ya's Dark Bluesilver Grass' greatest strength was that it became stronger the more it fought. She could nourish her own body by draining her enemies' life and soul power. The Bluesilver Grass would carry out its own filtering in the process of absorption. This was the special characteristic of her evil martial soul.

    Not all evil soul masters were strong. But Tang Ya's Dark Bluesilver Grass was undoubtedly very outstanding and had great potential.

    Blood was on the verge of appearing in Tang Ya's eyes as she faced her arch-enemy. Her internal hatred erupted like a volcano. Several thick vines of Bluesilver Grass were covered by a layer of dim blood light as they flew up. They whipped towards Tie Li maniacally as if they were long canes.

    Tie Li had the same Iron-Armed Bear martial soul as his son, but his was much stronger. His thick arms started to flail and became extremely tough through the enhancement of his third soul ring. The sharp spikes on the Bluesilver Grass couldn't pierce his skin, and he shook off the vines of Bluesilver Grass. He was also getting closer and closer to Tang Ya.

    The other two soul kings didn't idle around either. One of them was an agility-type soul master, while the other was a control-type soul master. Their martial souls were the Swift Wolf and Long Whip respectively. Those were two ordinary martial souls.

    The soul king with the Long Whip exhibited his fourth soul skill and drew a circular arc in the air that attacked Tang Ya, whereas the soul king with the Swift Wolf snuck up behind Tang Ya and unleash his wolf claws as he carefully leapt towards her.

    Tang Ya was under attack on three fronts by two soul kings and a soul emperor. Even Bei Bei and Xu Sanshi might be unable to deal with this situation if they were here. Tang Ya's dominance as an evil soul master was fully unleashed at this point.

    "All of you will die!" She shouted as she looked into the sky and her fourth soul ring lit up.

    It was pertinent to note that her fourth soul ring was only added after the dark characteristic of her Bluesilver Grass was awakened. It also contained her strongest soul skill, obtained from a plant that had a five thousand year cultivation.

    A layer of weird purplish-red spread from Tang Ya. With her body as the center, a huge purplish-red ball of light with a 2 meter diameter was formed. There were weird stripes on this ball of light. All the vines of Bluesilver Grass that were attacking Tie Lie were also retracted at this point.

    The long whip that descended was deflected away, and the ball of light blew apart when the Iron-Armed Bear and Swift Wolf got close to Tang Ya.

    Countless vines of Bluesilver Grass appeared underneath Tang Ya's legs like sharp spikes before they spread out rapidly. It felt as if they were spreading like ripples. The entire courtyard seemed to be covered by Bluesilver Grass and a frightening aura. At the same time, it had turned bluish-purple too.

    This was too sudden. Tie Li and the other two elders had never seen such a powerful ranged attack before. The Bluesilver Grass was merely a common species of grass! Who knew that it could unleashed such a powerful soul skill?

    The two soul kings were instantly pierced by the Bluesilver Grass. An intense pain and numbness spread across their entire body. The elder with the Swift Wolf martial soul was in a better condition. When he realized things were going wrong, he leapt up quickly. The Bluesilver Grass reached a height of 2 meters, but only pierced his feet, whereas the elder with the Long Whip was pierced throughout his entire body. He stimulated all his soul power before he managed to destroy the Bluesilver Grass that pierced his entire body. But he was already covered in blood, and his life had been sucked away by the Bluesilver Grass.

    But did the elder with the Swift Wolf really avert this crisis? He didn't. Even though he was only pierced at his feet, the numbness caused him to fall straight down, and his body became stiff.

    The Bluesilver Grass continued to attack him, but his cultivation wasn't fully unleashed, as he was already numb. He was engulfed just like the other elder.

    The two of them weren't weak. They were mainly terrified by the appearance of an evil soul master. In addition, Tang Ya's fourth soul skill was also very tyrannical. If it were just ordinary Bluesilver Grass, they would only lose their ability to fight temporarily. But the Dark Bluesilver Grass carried a frightening devouring ability. The two soul kings' strength was immediately turned into its tonic.

    Tang Ya turned pale as she unleashed this blow, but she was immediately nourished by the two soul kings' strength. However, she was in great peril now.

    A layer of greyish light covered the Iron-Armed Bear. His fifth soul ring flashed extremely brightly, while the vines of Bluesilver Grass that tried to pierce his body were deflected away easily. He had already burst in front of Tang Ya ferociously and he struck his thick arms towards Tang Ya's head.

    Although Tang Ya's fourth skill was very powerful, she had lost her flexibility, and was temporarily unable to move.

    "Go and die!" Tang Ya screamed, and several clanging noises sounded. Several secret weapons shot out from different parts of her body. Flashing golden Dragon Beard Needles also appeared in her hands. She knew she was in trouble, but she wanted to drag Tie Li down to perish along with her. All the secret weapons that she unleashed were injected with the power that she had devoured earlier.

    Tie Li was a soul emperor. His sixth soul ring lit up at this point, and his arms grew in size again. They were now 3 times their original size. When he smashed them down, he managed to block off all the secret weapons.

    Volume 16, Chapter 142.2: Dark Bluesilver Grass

    The frightening force blew Tang Ya's hair behind her. She was about to perish under Tie Li's fists.

    As a mere soul ancestor, Tang Ya should be proud of herself for killing almost the entire sect and even two soul kings. But she still had to pay the price for her recklessness. That price was her life.

    "Dad, mom, I'm coming to find the both of you." Tang Ya's shut her purplish eyelids and two teardrops appeared at the corners of her eyes.

    She wasn't fearful, but reluctant in the face of death. Bei Bei's smiling face filled her mind at this point.

    Bei Bei...

    However, when Tang Ya was supposed to be struck, she didn't feel any pain. She groaned, and all the pressure was suddenly taken off her.

    One was usually insensitive at the most desperate of times. Tang Ya only reacted after a few seconds, and opened her eyes.

    Her fourth soul skill had already disappeared. The entire Ironblood Sect only had one corpse now. All the Ironblood Sect disciples that were killed by her previously had already been mummified by the Bluesilver Grass.

    Tang Ya's soul power had increased another level through this battle. She had reached Rank 44.

    Tie Li was currently being held in the air by an elder in a black robe. The elder looked at Tang Ya calmly. He lifted his hand and threw Tie Li in front of her.

    "He's yours now. You can deal with him in whatever way you want." The elder's voice was very calm. There was even a sense of benevolence amidst that calmness. The Iron-Armed Bear's sixth soul skill was helpless against this elder, who didn't even unleash his martial soul.

    Tang Ya was both emotionally and mentally unstable now. She didn't even bother to think who that elder was. She was only focused on Tie Li, who was still alive, but could only limp on the ground.

    Her arch-enemy was in front of her, and she could have her revenge now. Her body started to tremble in excitement.

    She lifted her hand and her delicate fingers pointed at Tie Li, "Tie Li, did you expect yourself to be in such a predicament after killing my parents and destroying the Tang Sect? I shall use you as a sacrifice to my parents' souls today."

    As she spoke, Tang Ya's hands moved repeatedly, and several streaks of golden light penetrated Tie Li's body. Tie Li's facial expression suddenly distorted, and he was no longer able to move his body. It's as if his entire body had cramped up all at once.

    Tang Ya was stunned. She lifted her head to look at the elder, "You sealed his voice."

    The elder smiled, "Do you want to listen to him?"

    Tang Ya nodded forcefully and gritted her teeth. "Yes!"

    "Okay." The elder lifted his hand and pressed against Tie Li. Tie Li's screams could suddenly be heard. His loud and pathetic voice even shocked the elder that had sealed his voice a little. Perhaps half of Heaven Dou City could hear his screams.

    Tie Li's body started to change. A contusion the size of a fist started to protrude from his body. He had turned into a freak in just a few seconds.

    Tang Ya used the Dragon Beard Needle once again. The Dragon Beard Needle wasn't the most dominant secret weapon in the Tang Sect, but it brought the greatest pain to an enemy.

    The thin, golden needle could normally shrink into a small grain, but when needed, it would turn into a long needle and pierce through the enemy's flesh. After it pierced through the flesh, it could shrink once again. The contusion was formed in this manner.

    Xu Sanshi couldn't take it when he was pierced by 1 needle previously. Tie Li was pierced by more than 10 needles now, and experienced unbearable pain. It was as if his muscles and nerves had been glued together. Tie Li could only use his soul emperor cultivation to scream now. No wonder it was so loud.

    The elder furrowed his brows and said, "Young lady, you need to be faster. Otherwise, the Heaven Dou Empire's royal family will send someone here."

    Tang Ya nodded and unleashed many varities of Tang Sect secret weapons. She didn't use them to attack Tie Li's sensitive areas. She started with his limbs before extending them to his body.

    "Dad, mom, I've taken revenge for the both of you!" Tang Ya bellowed into the sky. A crossbow bolt shot into Tie Li's head and ended his screams.

    At this point, waves of powerful aura could be sensed. The elder creased his brows and dashed in front of Tang Ya, "We have to go."

    "No, I won't go. This is where the Tang Sect is. Why must I go? I only killed the perpetrators who destroyed the Tang Sect. This is my home!"

    The elder raised his brows. He lifted his palm to hack at Tang Ya. Before Tang Ya's Bluesilver Grass could even react, her entire body turned numb, and she went limp. The elder lifted her, and a black fog engulfed his entire body. He disappeared into the air instantly.

    ......

    Huo Yuhao regained his energy after one day of rest. With the Life Gold's nourishment, his body's regenerative abilities were much greater than that of most soul masters of the same level. Although Xiao Xiao had endured less pain than him, she was still a little fatigued.

    "Xiao Xiao, how's your recovery?" Huo Yuhao asked Xiao Xiao, who had just awakened from her cultivation.

    Xiao Xiao replied, "I'm almost fully recovered. The Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear is very nourishing. Besides some soreness in my right arm, my soul power and strength have been fully restored."

    The sun had already risen in the east at this point. Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong had just finished cultivating the Purple Demon Eyes, while Elder Xuan had disappeared to parts unknown.

    Wang Dong asked, "So we'll be entering the forest again today?"

    Xiao Xiao jumped up and looked at the Star Dou Forest. She said, "I'm fine with it. I'm already a soul elder now. Haha. Monitor, I'm a level above you."

    They were resting 50 miles from Star Dou Forest. No soul beasts would come here under normal conditions. Elder Xuan disappeared after bringing them here.

    Huo Yuhao said, "Xiao Xiao, let us see your newly-obtained thousand year soul skill. It'll also strengthen our cooperation in Star Dou Forest."

    Although they had only been hunting soul beasts in Star Dou Forest for one day, the experience had been quite dangerous. The most perilous part wasn't when they met the thousand year Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear, but when they encountered the ten thousand year Deviltiger Cat. They would have perished under the Deviltiger Cat's sudden attack if not for Elder Xuan's protection and their enhanced powers.

    After the close shave that day, their excitement and playful mindsets had ceased to exist. They were only left with vigilance.

    "Alright, I shall let you see," Xiao Xiao said forthrightly.

    As a black light flashed, the Threelives Soulcrush Cauldron had already appeared in front of her. Three soul rings-two yellow and one purple-also rose from beneath her feet.

    It was a different feeling to obtain another soul ring. The elegant purple thousand year soul ring was indeed more beautiful than the yellow hundred year soul rings.

    Xiao Xiao shouted, and the Threelives Soulcrush Cauldron rose into the air. "Watch carefully."

    As she spoke, the purple thousand year soul ring had already lit up.

    "Nom-!" A weird sound came from the Threelives Soulcrush Cauldron. It was as if the cauldron was jerking tremendously. The size of the cauldron started to increase greatly following that.

    The cauldron, which initially had a diameter of around 1 meter, increased in size to about 3 meters in diameter. The cauldron also turned dark gold like the thousand year Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear's fur. The cauldron was much stronger than before as the dark golden light flashed.

    "Monitor, be careful." Xiao Xiao shouted before the huge Threelives Soulcrush Cauldron started to burst towards Huo Yuhao.

    Huo Yuhao had already sensed a gust of ominous wind blowing towards him when the cauldron was tens of meters away from him. The cauldron had to be over a thousand kilograms in weight. But Huo Yuhao didn't retreat. Instead, he lifted his hands and unleashed the Ice Empress' Pincer. He slammed it into the Threelives Soulcrush Cauldron.

    "Clang!" The Threelives Soulcrush Cauldron fell, while Huo Yuhao was sent flying by the collision. Even the chill released by the Ice Empress Pincer was dissipated by the dark golden light. The Threelives Soulcrush Cauldron sank slightly into the ground. It had the aura of a national treasure at this moment.

    "It's really tough." Huo Yuhao complimented. He was forced back by the Threelives Soulcrush Cauldron even though he had unleashed the Ice Empress Pincer. This showed how powerful the cauldron was.

    The Threelives Soulcrush Cauldron carried a sense of nobility. The dark gold radiance seemed to have come alive, and revolved around the cauldron.

    Xiao Xiao was delighted as she said, "My third soul ring has brought me a thousand year soul skill 'the Cauldron's Might' that has changed my Threelives Soulcrush Cauldron completely. It's as if the Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear has possessed it. Its defensive strength has increased by at least 3 times. In addition, unleashing the Cauldron's Might before using the two other soul skills makes me much stronger. My Threelives Soulcrush Cauldron has experienced a holistic increase in strength with this soul skill. It's not so easy to crush it anymore. Watch this Cauldron Quake."

    Xiao Xiao shouted once again as she spoke. As a thunder-like boom rang out, a dark golden halo extended to a radius of 3 about meters with the cauldron as the center. The earth under the halo collapsed and caused the cauldron to sink a meter into the ground. The powerful shockwave even caused a little distortion in the air.

    Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong could still feel the tremors even though they were not standing within the radius of the halo. Xiao Xiao's Threelives Soulcrush Cauldron had become much more powerful with her third soul skill, the Cauldron's Might.

    Volume 16, Chapter 142.3: Dark Bluesilver Grass

    "Excellent. Segregation, control and defense. Your Threelives Soulcrush Cauldron is indeed a powerful tool soul." Wang Dong complimented. An increase in Xiao Xiao's abilities was equivalent to an increase in their team's strength!

    They had the lowest cultivations among everyone in Shrek's Seven Monsters. It was impossible for them not to have the desire to catch up with their seniors. However, the three of them possessed twin martial souls and the greatest potential.

    Xiao Xiao laughed and looked at Huo Yuhao, "Monitor, show us how powerful the fellow that almost destroyed my arm is."

    Xiao Xiao was still a little petrified as she mentioned the Darkgolden Terrorclaw Right Palm Bone. If Huo Yuhao hadn't absorbed its strength away, her right arm would have been gone by now.

    Huo Yuhao nodded and lifted his right arm. As a dark golden radiance flashed, 5 sharp claws that resembled blades extended from his palm.

    "It was rather difficult to fuse with this Darkgolden Terrorclaw Right Palm Bone. However, it's indeed different from an ordinary soul bone. There are 2 forms to it. The first is the ordinary form just like what we're seeing now. The other form is during a soul skill attack. Take a look."

    As he spoke, Huo Yuhao chose a rock that was as big as a millstone and threw it up. He then slashed his right hand towards the rock. The rock was cut into several pieces without even making a sound.

    The pieces of the rock landed on the ground. Both Xiao Xiao and Wang Dong rushed to take a look at them. The rock had been divided into many pieces, and the cuts were very sleek.

    Xiao Xiao stared wide-eyed, "This, this is like cutting tofu! It's really sharp."

    Huo Yuhao chortled, "You shouldn't feel indebted to me now that you've seen this. I've obtained an extremely good soul bone for myself too! The Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear is able to become one of the most dangerous soul beasts because of its Darkgolden Terrorclaw."

    Xiao Xiao shook her head and said seriously, "It's different. Monitor, I know it."

    Huo Yuhao smiled slightly and said, "Alright, let's not talk about this anymore. I shall show you its soul skill form."

    His gaze straightened as he spoke, and the terrorclaws on his right palm waved in the distant air. An intense dark gold radiance shot out, and the powerful terrorclaws changed into 3 meter-long dark golden claw projections before they clawed into the ground.

    No dirt or gravel was displaced from the ground, but five 3 meter-long scratch marks appeared. Even the air seemed to have been clawed. After Huo Yuhao finished clawing, there was still an echo left in the air.

    Huo Yuhao teased Xiao Xiao, "Do you want to test out my Darkgolden Terrorclaws with your Cauldron's Might?"

    "It's fine. Thanks." Xiao Xiao shook her head hurriedly, and quickly put her Threelives Soulcrush Cauldron away.

    Wang Dong asked, "Yuhao, what's the rate of depletion of your soul power when using this Darkgolden Terrorclaw?"

    Huo Yuhao answered, "It's still fine, as it only comes from a two thousand year Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear. There's not much depletion in its original form. It's just like a part of me - nothing different from my hand. The depletion is greater when I'm using the soul skill. It depletes around 30% of my soul power every time I use it. Elder Xuan was right. I can feel this right palm bone absorbing my strength slowly after it has fused with me. It seems like it really can evolve."

    Wang Dong said, "Let's go. Let's enter the Star Dou Forest again and hope our luck continues. We'll find a suitable soul beast for your third soul ring."

    "Sure." Huo Yuhao nodded. Becoming a soul elder was necessary for every powerful soul master, and it was also the first major barrier in the development of every soul master. For those whose soul power and martial soul were weaker, they were destined to be unable to overcome this barrier in their entire life. After crossing this barrier, a soul master was no longer in the beginner stage anymore. He would have reached the intermediate stage.

    While the three of them were not ordinary soul elders, they still had to make this breakthrough in their soul power.

    The three proceeded in the direction of Star Dou Forest after they packed up.

    They covered the tens of miles quickly. Huo Yuhao continued to lead them while Wang Dong and Xiao Xiao followed behind him. The three of them seemed familiar with Star Dou Forest as they entered it again. Huo Yuhao initiated his Spiritual Detection Sharing and they proceeded much faster than the first time they had entered the forest. They covered around 10 miles in less than an hour, and started to search for a suitable soul beast for Huo Yuhao.

    Although Huo Yuhao knew that it wouldn't be easy to find a spiritual-type soul beast that suited him, he didn't think it would be that difficult either. Over the next 10 days, they circled almost half of Star Dou Forest. But they didn't manage to find a suitable soul beast.

    They did encounter spiritual-type soul beasts, but these soul beasts were either too weak or not old enough. He couldn't possibly fuse with ten year or hundred year soul rings.

    Their strategy also changed during this period of time. Their original strategy was not to rile any soul beasts, but they wouldn't cave in when they met soul beasts that attacked them actively. In this way, they prevented a lot of trouble. However, this didn't manage to attract higher-level soul beasts.

    But they did benefit slightly from their 10 days in the forest. They had to remain on alert in the Star Dou Forest as they might be in danger at any time. Under such conditions, they  started to assimilate their experience in the tournament and understanding during their closed-door cultivation, and coordinated better and better with one another. Thousand years soul beasts no longer posed any threat to them. Of course, this was only if they met one of such soul beasts. They could only escape if they met a bunch of soul beasts.

    In these 10 days of training, their mindset, attainments and the development of their potential were all very important to them. Elder Xuan didn't appear in these 10 days, as if he wasn't following them at all. He allowed them to move freely.

    Huo Yuhao finally understood why he hadn't been made a core disciple of Shrek Academy. It was too difficult for his Spirit Eyes to obtain a suitable soul ring. His good fortune seemed to have ended after he hunted the Darkgolden Terrorclaw Bear.

    Night had fallen again. The three of them retreated from Star Dou Forest and rested at a small hill 30 miles away. They slept in two small tents.

    "Yuhao, we can't continue on like this! We've circled almost half of Star Dou Forest, but we've only seen a few spiritual-type soul beasts. Even then, none of them were suitable for you." Wang Dong furrowed his brows as he looked at Huo Yuhao flipping grilled meat.

    Huo Yuhao flipped the grilled meat skillfully and said, "It's indeed difficult to find a soul beast that's suitable for me. It's already rare to find a spiritual-type soul beast. It's even more difficult to find one that's suitable for me."

    Xiao Xiao said, "Monitor, why don't we go deeper in? If we go further in by another 10 miles, I believe the quality of soul beasts that we'll encounter will be higher."

    Huo Yuhao was silent. Although they knew that Elder Xuan was protecting them secretly, they were all very proud as the new generation of Shrek's Seven Monsters. None of them wanted Elder Xuan to intervene unless there was a special situation. They could naturally sense their improvement in all aspects after these 10 days of training. This was especially evident for Xiao Xiao, who was able to use her Cauldron's Might more freely. She should be able to determine the outcome of a battle with one sweep of her Cauldron's Might.

    Wang Dong nodded and said, "I agree. Yuhao, you don't have to think so much. We should be able to deal with a ten thousand year soul beast with our combined strength if we meet one, or at least we'll have no problem preserving our lives. Even if we venture a further 10 miles in, we'll still be very far from the center of the forest. We'll just see fewer hundred year soul beasts. It won't be too dangerous with your Spiritual Detection Sharing's ability to warn us and if we're careful enough. In addition, greater pressure will also be beneficial for us. Elder Xuan hasn't appeared, not even to eat your grilled meat, because he wants to give us more training. I feel that our soul power and live experiences have improved significantly during this period of time."

    Huo Yuhao nodded and said, "Alright, we'll go deeper in then. However, I have to put this across first. If we meet a ten thousand year soul beast, we have to leave the area immediately after the battle." As the team leader, he had to take responsibility for everyone's safety. They could venture deeper in with their current abilities. Huo Yuhao didn't persist any further, since Elder Xuan was secretly protecting them too.

    The three of them rested early after they had their dinner. The tents only covered the night sky. Huo Yuhao and Wang Dong cultivated in one tent, while Xiao Xiao took another tent by herself.

    Although Huo Yuhao had reached a bottleneck in his mastery of the Mysterious Jade Hands, he understood the importance of accumulation. The temporary bottleneck wouldn't affect his cultivation, and it would increase accordingly when he obtained his soul ring. This was said to be confirmed by one of Shrek Academy's founders, a teacher known by the title of Grandmaster. This Grandmaster's research on the 10 core competitive powers in the world of soul masters also played a huge role in erecting Shrek Academy's foundation as the continent's top academy.

    As they were cultivating in the middle of night, Huo Yuhao's eyelids started to twitch. He opened his eyes quickly. When he opened his eyes, a golden light shone in the small tent.

    The Haodong Power also dispersed quickly and turned back into their soul powers. Wang Dong opened his eyes too.

    "What's wrong, Yuhao?" Wang Dong was a little puzzled as he looked at him.

    Huo Yuhao said in a deep voice, "We have company. I'll go and take a look. Wake Xiao Xiao up. This bunch of people should be going to Star Dou Forest."

    "Okay."
